As to whether the industry is going out of style, loot at the last three (3) years of P&Ls and Tax Returns on any business you review. Also, look at turnover among Clients. Trends in both could point to weaknesses (in strengths) in the market. You need to be careful, because a variety of technological advances in communications could weigh in here. Not just ringing forwarded to various areas, but general tends in computerized answering systems and tle like. You are right to question this area.
